Children will learn why they feel happy, sad, angry, and proud in this colorful collection of illustrated books.

Each book in this set covers a different emotion that little ones feel on a regular basis, but might not fully understand or know how to deal with. In I Feel Angry, young children will learn the best way to deal with angry feelings, and what happens in the body when we get angry. I Feel Proud encourages kids to reflect on what makes them feel proud, and why it's important to have pride in themselves. Fun characters illustrate each emotion, from a little teardrop representing Sadness to a smiling sun for Happiness, and simple text is ideal for reading aloud. This collection of board books is the ideal gift for every young child, and makes a stylish addition to any bookshelf.
